This news isn’t the best we can deliver for BlackBerry lovers. Sadly, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 will not launch in the next couple of months, but rather make a late appearance in September. Sure up until September 23rd, RIM could keep their announced availability projections intact, but talk about pushing it out. When we were told it would be available this summer back at WES (BlackBerry World), I don’t think we wanted it to be so long from now. But does it really matter at this point?
Hell, RIM is slowly fading, though some would disagree and say it’s happening faster. Decisions like this are to blame. Android releases multiple devices almost every week. Additionally, there is a big rumor circulating about some kind of phone, being release around September as well. Oh, that’s right the iPhone 4S/5. It may not happen, but why chance your business going up against an established Titan like the iPhone.
Sure RIM could surprise us and launch the BlackBerry Bold 9900 sooner. We hope so! However, if this latest report is accurate, well … it’s business as usual. What are your thoughts? Disappointed, expected this, or you don’t care?
